John Roderick and Friends

If you ever wanted to know if your favorite tweeters are as witty, funny, and self-deprecating in person as they are inside 140 characters, here is your night to find out. SW columnist John Roderick has corralled some of his music- and comedy-inclined friends—industry-slaying songwriter Jonathan Coulton, Comedy Central contributor John Hodgman, etc.—for a night of cultural debauchery. “It’s going to be like Sammy, Frank, and Dean at the Sands in ’63,” Roderick says, “except with more classy dames, more roulette, more Lincoln Continentals, hotter tunes, funnier jokes, and better suits.” If you can’t make the show, follow @johnroderick, sure to include myriad updates. Note: Roderick and Hodgman are collaborating on a piece for Reverb Monthly’s Election Special, which you can find tucked inside Seattle Weekly on October 31. With Merlin Mann, John Hodgman, Scott Simpson, and Jonathan Coulton. CHRIS KORNELIS
